The first expansion of the facility took place in  2015 and due to high demand, a further expansion was completed in September 2019.

This strategic investment now brings the total capacity of the facility to more than 45,000 pallet positions and 20,000 square meters of refrigerated space. In addition to increased storage space, the expansion also added adequate infrastructure to increase the range of services offered. A dedicated chamber for -60°C storage and blast freezing cells were added to the facility, along with a dedicated area for case picking.

The facility has already welcomed its first customers into the newly built area and is also receiving volume from existing customers. The expansion will continue to strengthen AGRO’s leadership position and emphasize the company’s continued focus of investing in modern assets and technologies.

Urk has been a Northern European center for seafood trading for decades. AGRO Merchants Urk specializes in offering integrated cold storage and logistics solutions for the seafood sector, including transport & distribution, customs documentation, veterinarian border check point, case picking and bonded storage.
